Quick Prep

Between a toddler and a baby it’s always go time; I often find myself throwing together whatever I can get my hands on fast enough.  Let me just be blunt:  meal time with little kids is nonexistent for the adults – I rarely enjoy a meal or even know what I am eating!!  That being said I need quick items.  I have been relying on frozen veggies and meat prepped ahead of time.  I usually will then defrost the veggies in the microwave, reheat the meat and toss that together with some sauce or dressing that I have on hand.  After I eat my entree I pray that I have some leftover dessert I baked earlier that week or I finish off my meal with a protein bar – lately I am a big fan of RxBars (they were on sale on amazon – we stocked up!!).  Here is a sample meal from yesterday:

I am kind of obsessed with this coffee.  It doesn’t give me the high jolt of energy paired with high anxiety like a regular cup of coffee.  I believe a cup of this coffee wakes me up to be alert without the jitters.  This blended caffeine beverage consists of coffee, matcha tea & cocoa nibs – it is tasty, light and refreshing.  I personally enjoy it iced with nut milk it’s usually my breakfast dessert.

Speaking of dessert… Every good meal ends with a sweet treat!

Here is a great recipe for a favorite Italian holiday cookie:  Paleo Pignoli Cookies
